I decided that this year would be the first of what I hope will be an annual list of favorite photos. As I looked back on this year I found that it was somewhat easier to pick my favorites than I thought it would be. This could be a bad thing. It could mean I [...]
Today’s image is of the grand fireplace at Rough Creek. Images like this help put me in the Christmas mood. I hope it does the same for you.
As some of you know, my day job is being a creative director at an agency in Fort Worth. I mention this, because today’s photos are actually shots of one of my recent designs—a new trail sign for Tarrant Regional Water District (TRWD) and The Trinity Trails. I’ve been working with TRWD for about five [...]
This past week I’ve had several of my readers, all two of them, ask about Rough Creek Lodge. I thought it appropriate to share some photos of the rooms and common areas. The rooms are very spacious. You enter into a small hallway where there is a counter and two built in wardrobes. These wardrobes [...]
Today’s photo is of the Christmas Tree in the Main Great Room at the Rough Creek Lodge. As I’ve said, this is a really nice place to have a Christmas party. Since we are just a little over a week away from Christmas, I hope this helps to get you in the mood.

I love to learn about these old things [...]
Today’s image is of the entry walk to the main building at Rough Creek. That fireplace at the top of the stairs is such a welcome when you pull up and unload your luggage. It really sets the tone for a Christmas weekend.
I’m not really big on fishing. Yes, I’ve done my fair share of fishing over the years, but it isn’t something I dream about doing like a lot of my friends do. However, I do like the “nostalgia” of fishing. By that, I mean the feeling one gets when sitting on a dock or bank [...]
We had our annual company Christmas party this weekend at Rough Creek Lodge close to Glen Rose, Texas. If you’ve never experienced Rough Creek, you should. It’s the ultimate Texas Lodge, with everything from horse back riding, hunting, shooting, fishing, four-wheeling, etc. But it also caters to those who like the more civilized pleasures. It [...]
On this cold, wet Sunday night, here’s a shot to help warm us up. Ellion and I went out this evening to downtown Grapevine and suffered the cold wet rain and grabbed a couple of shots. This is the best one I took this evening. I love store windows and this one really seemed to [...]
